Jim Schnitter Member Since January 2010 Artist Statement I have been taking college art classes for the last 9 years and enjoy working in a large group of artists, because I thrive on the interaction, support and motivation. I have an engineering background and also received my certificate in Graphic Art and worked at that some. I am currently taking a figure drawing class and a painting class. My goal is to create slightly abstract work that is mostly figurative. I enjoy combining painting and drawing with graphic art and like to experiment with media and substrates. Lately, I have enjoyed sketching using Photoshop and Illustrator using a digital tablet.
